Really insightful interview transcript with Greg Scullard, Lead Developer Advocate at Hedera, at Blockchain HEC, France touching on automotive , insurance and carbon credits

I’m only going to highlight below one relevant point mentioned in the first half of the AMA, which lead me to ask Greg specifically about Automotive and Insurance, topics he will further elaborate on during the Q&A part.

So that’s the first reason, the second, consequently, is that this allows as well for securing the network simply because the Hashgraph consensus, once it determines an operation, doesn’t calculate the number of nodes but determines the weight of that node in Hbars.

So currently, the Council Members are the only ones elligible to operate nodes, said otherwise, the 50 Billion existing Hbars are nominally distributed and divided equally between these nodes, s...
